in power so, for example, in egypt you had mubarak, very much aligned with u.s. and israeli interests. he was willing to turn a blind eye to israeli aggressions as they described it in gaza so long as he could secure the support of the u.s. and israel. you is a very different dynamic now and why this is also a very big test to egypt, to its credit, america is allowing egypt to immediate this and so far, egyptian officials say they are not [ inaudible ] a peace treaty with israel. president morsi says he's committed to the international obligations but he's also using his leverage to perhaps rein in hamas. it's not necessarily that hamas feels empowered but now perhaps egypt's president is saying to hamas you also have a responsibility to govern, you can't just fire these rockets indiscriminately and trigger this type of backlash. this isn't only a crossroads for israel and gaza, it has a tremendous amount of implications for egypt and u.s. foreign policy vis-a-vis the new emerging realities of the arab world. >> i want to open this up to our panel in new york. something that has been goin

"the journal" says the fbi's investigation began in may when it started looking into e-mails described as threatening sent to a woman cnn has identified as jill kelley, a family friend of petraeus'. the fbi traced the e-mails back to paula broadwell, petraeus' biographer. and by late summer, "the wall street journal" report, the bureau linked broadwell to petraeus. that's when "the journal" says top officials informed eric holder of the situation. >> once the white house, once some staffer knows, various people find out about something, it becomes public almost instantly. you see this all the time. >> reporter: cnn contributor tom fuentes says under its protocols the fbi and justice department should have kept it inside their circles, unless there was evidence of a breach of
to the democrats. but the competitive u.s. senate race for republican jon kyl's old seat, that seat stayed republican. and yes, the county sheriff who did the whole taxpayer-funded stunt about having his cold case posse uncover the fraud of president obama's birth certificate, that sheriff did get re-elected, barely. last time he won by a 13-point landslide. this time he won by much less than that, but did get re-elected. and that public publicity-hungry arizona sheriff is not the only arizona official who has lately been fixated on the president's birth certificate. the arizona secretary of state this year threatened to keep president obama off the ballot in arizona for this year's election. because, you know, kenya, or whatever. and because that is the record of arizona's secretary of state, the state's current top elections official, i think nobody had very high expectations for him in terms of how well he would do running elections in the state of arizona. and indeed, the arizona elections this year went horribly. and it took them 14 days to even come up with the results. but they do h

's amazing. >> the other thing i find amazing is i remember going through the u.s. treasury in the height of the financial crisis, and back then, you had officials who were scribbling down important facts and figures on scrap paper because that was one of the few things they were able to legally throw away and get rid of. and if you go around other branches of the u.s. government today, people are intensely aware of the risks of e-mails being kept. if you go and talk to private sector banks, nobody working on a bank trading floor these days can possibly not be aware of the risks of tracking thoughts and e-mails. and yet somehow the military just seems not to have noticed this. it is very, very striking. >> there's one other dedataidei this "journal" story, kelley had second thoughts. and people said they made the request, quote, she was worried about the personal information being provided to investigators. >> like the diplomatic license plates. >> talk about the horse after it's left the barn door. >> you predicted fiscal cliff would be the fifth question. it's going to be our second top
on the balance of power, specifically the high stakes in the u.s. senate. next, hour a shift in power in the senate could impact the next four years and we're highlighting three races you need to watch. >>> with tomorrow's vote we could see a shift in the balance of power in congress. you know the deal. republicans have the majority in the house of representatives right now. they would love to grab control of the senate. on the flip side, democrats control the senate and are looking to gain power in the house. does either side really have a chance to make any political gains? let's bring in senior congressional pont dana bash who has been covering all of the races here, all of the senators and members of congress. talking specifically about the senate, how could the power shift? >> well, let's start with where things stand now. this is basically a virtual senate, and right now there are 47 republican seats, 51 democratic and two independent. let's look at what is at stake on tuesday. tomorrow. all of these white seats are going to be up for grabs. so it is 33 seats, it is a third of t
another couple of percentage points on the upside. keep in mind that the u.s. economy is still growing at a 1% to 2% happenedndle on gdp. like your previous guests mentioned, this fiscal drag that will occur in 2013. so, you know, 1% move in the market today is just noise. we have to look towards what global gdp is going over the course of the next 18 months. that's decelerating. >> so what you're saying, chad, is it doesn't mat who ater who the white house. >> 2013 is going to look exactly like 2012. global gdp will be decelerating. the u.s. economy should perhaps be at a 1% to 2% gdp growth trajectory. that's including a fiscal drag in the united states of about 1%. that's our baseline assumption. but one should consider also that over in europe, you're going to be going into a recession in 2013. and our expectation there is for, perhaps, a 1% contraction. that's going to affect the financial markets here in the united states. one should not dilute themselves of that fact. >> maria, i think that the market today is probably as much about just election uncertainty coming out of the ma
in the u.s. congress. >> i'm speechless. i'm without words. what do you say to that? somewhat what do you say to someone who is an elected member of congress, who is a potential presidential nominee, someone who could be president of the united states and he's speaking this way? the republican party, maybe that plays well to the republican party base, but in no way is that a winning message for the vast middle of the country who wants someone who is a little more with it in terms of science. >> and that's a very good point. we talk about the fallout the republicans have had on certain issues. whether that's women's health or immigration, another piece of that is science. the fact that many people were turned off by the gop by their strict of facts and figures. >> i think what marco rubio is trying to say, and i don't want to speculate too far, but this is the not the core issue. he's trying to get back to the economy and the republicans perceived strength and not try to get on the issue of creationism. >> never mind the fact that scientists say the earth is 45 billion years old. >> he was
, this was an all-important test of u.s.-egyptians relations following the arab spring. what's the grade? >> well, the grade is good. better than good. you have to be cautious, of course. you're talking about the middle east. but i think that it's remarkable, alex, really, to see the kind of praise that president morsi is receiving. even in those defiant speeches that ayman was referring to, hamas leaders, islamic jihad leaders, benjamin netanyahu's comments last night, secretary clinton's comments last night, president obama's praise, everybody has good things to say about morsi, who has now emerged not only as a can-do politician, but a power broker in the region. for instance, when the truce deal needed to be closed and clinton came to cairo, she spent hours with morsi and with his foreign minister, mohammed kamul, finding the compromise that israel and hamas could live with. mainly stop the hostilities today and negotiate the other demands later. alex? >> jim, thank you very much for that live report from cairo with the latest on the brokering of the truce. joining me now, former u.s. ambassa
weeks after the longest, most expensive and exhausting election in u.s. history eyes are turning to 2016 as speculation begins over the next batch of candidates lining up to run for president. >> who could that be? i know it's going to be a surprise. >> i know it is too. we're moving past these dynasties. >> exactly. >> of ruled politics for decades. republican up and comer jeb bush jr. says he would love to see his dad run for president, and rand paul says he's going to follow in his pop's footsteps too and hillary is going to run too. do you have to be related to somebody who has been president of the united states or run for president of the united states to actually do that yourself? >> i think that's what makes the names. here's jeb jr. >> your dad going to run for president? >> i don't know. no comment. i certainly hope so. >> which is it, i don't know or no comment? >> i think it's the i hope so. >> you said, i don't know, no comment, and i hope so, which are all kind of contradictory. >> give me the full loaf of bread right there. >> word is out of florida jeb is lining up for 20

these things out. thanks, chuck. chuck todd at the white house. >>> now joining us is u.s. congressman james clyburn from south carolina, member of the house leadership. let's talk about the real politics of equity, fairness, real democratic values, congressman. you're in the leadership. you're going to make the call. does the president have to win -- i think he has to -- does he have to win on making sure the wealthy of this country get back to paying what they paid under clinton? >> absolutely. he's just absolutely got to win that. and i think he will win that. but let me say, chris, thank you so much for having me. may i say something about susan rice? >> sure. >> i have a real, real problem with my senior senator trying to make her a scapegoat in this. susan rice's roots are in florence, south carolina, that i got the opportunity to serve for almost 20 years in the congress. her father, who -- emmitt, born in florence, didn't leave there until he was 16 years old, i've been a close friend of his over the years. i'm a close friend of susan rice. i think it's absolutely a shame for this yo
of the u.s. conference of catholic bishops, offered benedictions at both the democratic and republican conventions. for months, the bishops have led a vigorous campaign against the obama administration's policy mandating that employers, including many religious employers, offer free coverage of contraceptive services to their employees. the bishops accuse the obama administration of violating religious liberty. it's unclear how much those efforts have changed any opinions among voters. polls show catholics remain deeply divided, and that could be especially important in battleground states such as ohio, pennsylvania and florida. while much of the focus has been on the economy, green says here at the end of the campaign, other social issues may play an important role. >> there's some strong incentives for the parties to reach out for secondary issues. issues like women's rights, religious liberty, the environment, foreign policy. because if voters are evenly divided on their most salient issue, the economy, they're going to make their decision perhaps on some of these secondary issues.
, today congress will hold its first formal inquiry on the deadly raid on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that left four americans dead including ambassador chris stevens. general david petraeus who was scheduled to testify today before he resigned now will testify tomorrow. what he learned from his own independent investigation into the benghazi attack. meanwhile, republican senators from the armed services committee including john mccain and lindsey graham are now calling for a, quote, watergate-style investigation into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented th
and 47 republicans. one-third of the u.s. senate is up for election tonight. that's 33 seats. 23 democratic and ten republican. in order for the republicans to take control of the senate, they would need to win four seats. that bat logical take place in about a dozen states from places like connecticut and massachusetts out east to nevada and arizona out west. cbs news considers six of these states true tossups. that's massachusetts, connecticut, virginia, wisconsin, north dakota, and montana. republicans have what they're calling their big four. that's montana, north dakota, nebraska and wisconsin. republicans tell us in order for them to win the senate they have to win the majority of the big four. the polls have closed. we're going to take a closer look in virginia where the polls have closed at the senate race there. there's a contest between two former popular governors. you have republican george allen, the former u.s. senator from that state and democrat tim kaine, the former head of the democratic national committee. this is a very tight race. it's also the most expensive
we're probably going to pick up the u.s. senate seat in pennsylvania. people forget, they say this is a democratic state. it's got a republican governor, one of the two senators is a republican, a majority of the house is republican. both the house and state senate are republican. there's likelihood he will carry pennsylvania. but in ohio, i think we're going to carry ohio. i'll give you one example, piers. in southeastern ohio is coal country and is very conservative with belief in god, right to bear arms. the democratic early voting in those counties are votes for romney. yet if you look at the various analysis, they're taking democratic turnout in ohio as though it's all going to be for obama. this is right next to west virginia, where a convicted felon sitting in a texas prison got 40% of the democratic presidential primary vote against obama. those are romney votes, not obama votes and romney going to pittsburgh is going to resonate all along that ohio river valley tomorrow. >> the problem it seems to me has been forced by hurricane sandy, which caused many problems for m

. i think we're probably going to pick up the u.s. senate seat in pennsylvania. people forget, they say this is a democratic state. it's got a republican governor, one of the two senators is keeping them honest, the majority of the house is republican. pennsylvania because of the war on coal is very, very upset with obama and i think there's a likelihood we will carry pennsylvania. that washes out all of the angst about ohio but frankly, in ohio, i think we will carry ohio. give you one example. in southeastern ohio along the river, it's coal country and it's very conservative on things like the right to bear arms, belief in god, people who in obama's famous phrase, worry about god and guns as he said in san francisco because he totally misunderstanding him in 2008. the democratic early voting in those counties are votes for romney, yet if you look at the various analyses in the national media, they're taking total democratic turnout in ohio as though it's all going to be for obama but i guarantee you, this is right next to west virginia, where a convicted felon sitting in a t

of u.s. and nato forces in afghanistan, general john allen, has also been investigated by the fbi after having exchange, according to a senior defense official, possibly thousands of potentially inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley, the 37-year-old social liaison at the heart of the scandal that led to general petraeus' resignation. house homeland security committee chair peter king had another term to describe the unfolding drama. >> it's really a great tragedy. general petraeus, one of our most distinguished generals and general allen, considered a super star in the military, did an outstanding job in afghanistan, was going to go to nato, it's just tragic. you're right, this has the elements in so ways of a hollywood movie or trashy novel. >> a brief primer on the characters until so-called trashy novel. allen who is married became ensnared in the investigation because of his e-mail correspondent spns with kelley who in may started receiving a series of what she considered to be harassing e-mails from petraeus biographer and fellow west point grad paula broadwell. the ensuing invest
